RIGHT FROM THE START
Helping mothers and their babies lead healthier lives through home visitation services with a Designated Care Coordinator.
Right From the Start (RFTS)
Our services are FREE and support mothers, their new babies, and their families by helping to create a safe and nurturing home.
How to Do I Get Started?
To be eligible for Right From the Start, you need to:
Be pregnant or have a child less than one-year-old
Be a resident of West Virginia, and
Have a current, active Medicaid Card or medical coverage through the Office of Maternal, Child, and Family Health (OMCFH).
All pregnant teens ages 19 or younger are eligible for medical coverage through the Office of Maternal, Child, and Family Health (OMCFH) regardless of family income if they are uninsured for maternity care.
If you were denied Medicaid and you are uninsured for maternity care, DHHR will forward your application to the OMCFH to see if you qualify for prenatal coverage with the Right From The Start Maternity Services Project.
